Very, very sad:
CREW learned today that the Obama administration is opposing our request that the Supreme Court reconsider the dismissal of the lawsuit, Wilson v. Libby, et al. In that case, the district court had dismissed the claims of Joe and Valerie Wilson against former Vice President Dick Cheney, Karl Rove, Scooter Libby and Richard Armitage for their gross violations of the Wilsons’ constitutional rights.
Agreeing with the Bush administration, the Obama Justice Department argues the Wilsons have no legitimate grounds to sue. It is surprising that the first time the Obama administration has been required to take a public position on this matter, the administration is so closely aligning itself with the Bush administration’s views.
They may even cry.
Via Protein Wisdom: CREW’s site is apparently being hammered right now, but I think that this is the full text. At any rate, this should only come as a surprise to those people who bought into the agitprop that there was any point whatsoever to le affaire Plame past getting the Democratic base profitably riled up about the GOP. Which, admittedly, apparently includes most of the left-blogosphere.
